Systems Alliance Hires Veteran Software Sales Executive Patrick Crawford to Lead New Birmingham Office

BIRMINGHAM — Systems Alliance, Inc., a regional systems integrator providing high-value IT and business consulting services, today announced it has opened a new office in Birmingham, Alabama. The company has hired veteran software sales executive, Patrick Crawford to lead its business development efforts in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee.

With over 14 years of experience selling enterprise software and services, Crawford joins Systems Alliance after seven years with Computer Associates (CA), where he was consistently ranked among the company’s best-performing regional sales executives. Based in Birmingham, Crawford is a graduate of Athens State College in Athens, Alabama.

Systems Alliance’s entry into the Deep South marketplace follows its expansion last year into Raleigh, North Carolina, and continues the company’s growth strategy of deploying sales and delivery staff across the southeastern United States. Site selection and recruiting activities are underway in multiple markets.

“Robust economic growth in the southeast is evident in every sector of our business: commercial, higher education, healthcare and government,” said Ric Hughes, president and CEO, Systems Alliance. “For Systems Alliance, the region is alive with opportunity, as clients recognize the value of IT as a strategic differentiator in their enterprise and seek solutions for increasing their return on IT investments.”

Hughes added, “As we expand our business across the south, we are delighted to welcome Patrick Crawford to our team. His strong local roots, relationships with many of the region’s IT executives and deep technical knowledge will prove invaluable as Systems Alliance establishes itself as a partner and trusted advisor to the region’s IT decision makers.”
